Radiative cooling of nanoparticles close to a surface

Abstract : We study the radiative cooling of polar and metallic nanoparticles immersed in a thermal bath close to a partially reflecting surface. The dynamics of relaxation is investigated at different distances from the surface, i.e., in the near-field and far-field zones. We demonstrate the existence of an oscillating behavior for the thermal relaxation time with respect to the separation distance from the surface, an analog of Friedel oscillations in Fermi liquids.
